Euro 2012 – Top 10 players to watch

Top 10 ones to watch - Part 2

5. Luka Modric, Midfielder, Croatia

Luka Modric was the subject of considerable interest in the transfer market last summer but Tottenham managed to retain the world class playmaker. As vital as he is to Spurs, he is absolutely crucial to Croatia. He provides the creative talent and driving force behind their attacking force and guided the team to victory in their tricky Euro 2012 playoff with Turkey. He can change a match with an incisive pass, burst of speed or a moment of magic.

4. Cristiano Ronaldo, Striker, Portugal

Cristiano Ronaldo is no stranger to the big stage and will be in his element at Euro 2012. He can test any defence with his explosive speed and fancy footwork. A former World Player of the Year, he will be a constant threat to any team and has been in fine goalscoring form for Real Madrid. Also a major threat from any deadball situation, Ronaldo features in many Euro 2012 betting tips to be top scorer.

3. Christian Eriksen, Midfielder, Denmark

Christian Eriksen is a young attacking midfielder for Ajax and Denmark. His fine performances have not gone unnoticed and he will be one of the players coming under scrutiny as a possible summer transfer target. He has already been linked with a possible £20 million move to one of the top English Premier League sides and that price could go even higher if he performs well in Euro 2012. Eriksen already has experience of playing for his national side at the highest level when he played for Denmark at the 2010 World Cup and he is definitely one of the Euro players to watch.

2. Karim Benzema, Striker, France

Karim Benzema has been in superb form for Spanish giants Real Madrid in La Liga and has also scored vital goals for his country. He came to their rescue in their tough Euro 2012 group encounter with Bosnia-Herzegovina, Laurent Blanc's men eventually edging out Bosnia-Herzegovina by a point to top Group D. If young midfielders Yann M'Vila and Marvin Martin can provide him a good service, he could thrive under the Euro 2012 spotlight and spark a revival in French fortunes with his keen eye for goal.

1. Tomas Rosicky, Midfieder, Czech Republic

Tomas Rosicky has struggled to hold down a regular place in the Premiership for Arsenal, but his form in qualification was top class for the Czech Republic. They faced a difficult group against the World and reigning Euro champions Spain and were made to battle to qualify at the expense of Scotland. This presented them with a tricky playoff against Montenegro in the play-offs. If Rosicky can maintain the sort of form he showed in qualifying, the Czechs could surprise a few teams at Euro 2012.
